Creamy Cauliflower and White Cheddar Soup Recipe

 

I love soups.  This is such an easy way to make ahead several meals for fast lunches or easy dinners during the week.

I especially like these because I am a vegetarian and the rest of the family is not, so one big batch of soup can be my dinner for a few nights in the week.

The thing with soup is that you have to be careful because the really yummy ones can have a ton of calories.  This is a really light soup and yet it still tastes creamy and rich and satisfying.  For those of you that like baked potato soups, you might give this one a try!  Much healthier and much lower in calories.

Here is the cauliflower just cooking away- I will confess this is not my favorite smell :). I usually have a window open or a candle lit when cooking cauliflower.
